Protecting Your Android Phone With the Best Security Applications PDF Print E-mail

Your computer is an investment - and an expensive one at that - and so you regularly need to back up data to prevent any loss of or theft of confidential information. Your car is also an investment and so you might install any anti-theft software like LoJack to help recover it in case of a theft. If you take all the necessary steps to protect your car and your computer, then why not protect your Android Smartphone as well? Since your phone is probably the most used device, whether you know it or not, you will end up carrying a lot of sensitive information on your phone. So, if your phone gets stolen or if you lose it, then all this information will not be as personal anymore. Just like your computer and your car, your phone is also an investment. So, it is very important to safeguard your text, photos, contacts and videos. Even if you do take care of your phone and never lose it, there are certain applications that you can download. However, it is important to note that although most anti-theft applications claim to be a 100% effective, not all of them are as honest as you think they are.

Fortunately, the Smartphone market, especially the Android based phones, offer a great range of security options. Here are a few applications that will help secure your Android phone:

  • Kaspersky Mobile Security: A great application, the Kaspersky mobile security application is great for Android phones. A free account will allow you to scan your phone for malware, and will help you backup and restore your data online. It will also use GPS to help you locate your phone.

  • WaveSecure Mobile Security: WaveSecure comes replete with a number of features, like the option lock down and wipe your phone remotely, the option to backup your phone and restore information, and a thief will not be able to uninstall the program without typing in a password.
